The focus on that school is only on the recital, your money and their troop. If you wish to have your child learn form and function of dance- find another school! The classes focus on the recital dance and not grace. Then the recital will be very expensive with lots of hidden costs. You will sit through 3 hours of troop dances to see you child's 3 minutes of fame. I also have encountered teachers that do not interact well with children. There are lots of other schools available -- look into them.
